Taking a blogging break...

Boothbay Harbor, Maine, 2010

Happy Fourth of July!  

I'm taking a blogging break for the holiday and beyond.  There's just too much going on in my life right now, including work, writing, a family wedding (my niece), moving my son into an apartment, and later in the month, a vacation to Maine and the Atlantic Provinces.

Blogging (and reading all of your blogs) is a lot of fun, but something has to give.
